The next scene we see is Joaquin and Rodney starting their victory lap. Joaq makes the point that they really need to make sure they don't lose Sierra. Rodney tells him that it's all about the two of them and they have this all the way to the end. Joaq agrees that this is going to be way too easy for them. Okay, we all see where this is going, right? Wasn't Max in complete control just last week?
Joaq tells us that he really thought it would be him and Tyler to the end, but now he's got Rodney as his right hand and Sierra owes him one for saving her from her old tribe. FINALLY, someone talks to Joe. Mike is asking him where his head is at. Joe says he's down to do ANYthing at this point. We pan back to see Dan is also part of this conversation. Joe goes on to say that he's tried to talk to Joaquin, but he always has a little puppy dog following him around. Mike says he's concerned about the two white collars and how they've pulled Rodney in, and he's worried they'll do the same with Sierra.
Mike goes on to tell Joe that Rodney is planning to get rid of him at this tribal. Joe tells us that he's tried to get in on the bromance, but they won't talk to him at all. Joe tells the guys that when they first got there, it was all about Sierra because they thought she was on the outs. Mike tells him that she was, and it was mostly because of a beef with Dan. Dan seems to think that she'll go with whomever as long as her name doesn't get written down. He also seems to think he's done nothing but grovel since their big blow out.
Ya know, I think Dan's probably an ok guy, but he really lacks self-awareness. If he thinks he patched anything up with Sierra, he's nuts. Further, if he thinks that she'll just vote with them because it's them...he's more delusional than I thought. Joe tells us that his options are not looking good right now, but he's gonna keep fighting. As they continue to talk, Mike makes the case that if they get Sierra; Joaquin is the one that needs to go. Dan tells us that Joe is totally on board with them and everything will hinge on Sierra. He goes on to say that he totally screwed up with her and they really need to do whatever they can to get her back into the fold. Okay, maybe he's not as delusional as I thought.
We cut to Dan and Mike making their pitch to Sierra. Dan tells her that Rodney and Joaquin are too close and they need to be split up. He goes on to say that he screwed up and he really wants to earn her trust back. Good start, Dan. Now, you should probably let Mike take over.
